How to Nurture Your Business From Start-Up to CEO-Up!

by | Apr 15, 2020 | Blog, Business Planning, Business Systems, Right On Time Podcast, Start My Business, Strategy

Part of my reason for rebranding the Modern CEO Podcast as the Right on Time Podcast is the vital importance of ‘time’ when it comes to running a successful business. I want to be there to offer you the support and guidance your business needs at every step of your business journey. 

So, my question to you, my friend … where ARE you on that journey??

Growing a business is a little like raising a child — as your child grows, they move through different stages of development and you nurture them throughout these stages of growth in different ways.

That is exactly what you should be doing with your business, so it’s important to know which stage of growth you’re currently in. A business at the start-up level will have very different needs than one at the scale-up level and your priorities as a business owner will look wildly different! 

So, let’s figure out where you are in your journey — and what you need to focus on in order to nurture your business to its next amazing growth spurt!

In my latest podcast episode, you’ll discover:

  • The Modern CEO Must-Do List — and how it can help your business thrive!
  • The four levels of business growth and how to identify your current status!
  • Why transitioning into a leadership phase is actually GOOD for your productivity!

Can’t wait to find out where your business belongs in the Modern CEO Must-Do framework? Then press play and let’s get started!
